Minimise is excited to announce the launch of an innovative utility financial approach called UP powered by Minimise. UP which is an acronym for Utility Partnership allows utility companies to build true win-win energy efficiency partnerships with their clients.
Utility companies are faced with a paradox. The more they promote client energy reduction the less revenue they make. But they are required to do so to meet State/Federal environmental and sustainability mandates. So what can they do?
The UP powered by Minimise approach is uniquely positioned to align clients and utility companies to partner in the development and funding of energy efficiency projects. Via UP, Utilities benefit from client energy efficiency projects by:
Initial feedback from the marketplace about UP include “Game changing”, “Disruptive”, and “Silver bullet”… which is a great start!

OP-ED by Daniel Badran in Florida Politics
Action needs to be taken to mitigate rising energy costs. Florida legislators recently passed HB 741, which sets a timeline to end net metering in Florida.
It would be a major blow to the state’s rooftop solar industry.
Net metering, according to Florida Power and Light, is when “customers who connect approved, renewable generation systems such as solar panels to the electric grid” can “buy and sell electricity to FPL.”
In other words, it’s a way for residents to lower their monthly electric bills.
HB 741 reduces the credit from 75 to 60% for applications approved from Jan. 1, 2026, to Dec. 31, 2026. For applicants approved from Jan. 1, 2027, to Dec. 31, 2028, the credit amount on their bills drops an additional 10 points, down to 50%.
While the bill includes a 20-year grandfather clause for solar power implemented before 2023-2024, locking in the total retail rate for two decades, a recent Mason-Dixon poll shows that 84% of Florida voters support net metering — an overwhelming majority are in favor of finding alternative solutions to cut utility costs, which is something state legislators limit with this bill.
In South Africa, our Energy Supply sometimes leaves us “Powerless”. There are solutions and ways to address the problem: by reducing energy consumption, we support our power infrastructure (power availability) whilst at the same time reducing our expenses as well as prolonging the life of equipment and upgrading weary systems.
As a Financial Ally of the Department of Energy’s Better Business Challenge, Minimise has committed $250 million to help United States companies upgrade their buildings and plants to help save money, reduce carbon, and create a pathway to renewable energy that is rightsized to their needs and opportunities.

Utility rates are outpacing inflation. And that is scary! You can impact your inflationary cost increases by tightening your belts. BUT large entities (Municipalities, Universities, Schools, Hospitals, and large private entities) cannot do the same. You need to keep the lights on literally and figuratively. In the US, average utility rates are increased by almost 10% from 2021 to 2022. And it is getting worse. In several states the rate increases are astronomical. In Florida, utilities show increases of 18.7% FP&L) and 20.4% (Gulf Power). In California, PG&E, SCE, and SDGE are projecting increases by 2030 to 40%, 20%, and 70% respectively. And the reality is the actuals will be much worse. What is causing these rate increases beyond inflation? It is a variety of factors: • Natural gas costs have more than doubled from $2.32/MMBTU to $4.98/MMBTU • Costs of transmission infrastructure are being passed along to the customer • Financial impact of natural disasters (e.g., wildfires in CA and storms in TX) • Litigation waged against utilities • Recouping of lost revenues due to Covid-19
What is causing these rate increases beyond inflation? It is a variety of factors:
Values are the most valuable compass a company could ask for. It defines the very core existence and direction of any company; it is your DNA and lets the world know what your company stands for. It is the measure that should be used for staff, management, and business decision alignment. It is the foundation of a company culture and determines a joint mindset that either hinders development by being fixed or grows with a hunger for improvement, knowledge, and excellence. Global companies, such as Minimise, ensured to create an inclusive culture, stemming from shared values, where people feel their interests are aligned with the company around a clear purpose.
We get asked a lot of questions about the @Minimise Global approach, and when the questions are technical we always ask Andy Smith, our Senior Technology Director. Turns out, Andy has quite a bit of great information for the common energy efficiency bloke or the super technical engineer or tradesman. So we created Ask Andy.
Our school district is looking at a complete lighting upgrade to LEDs.What can we expect in terms of implementation?

When you are an elected official, is it your perspective that you are a caretaker of business as usual, no boats rocked, no chances taken? Or, do you feel you want to accomplish something, make definable, sustainable changes? Most people would say they want to do the latter but often, when presented with the opportunity, choose the former.
With so many taxpayers tired of business as usual and dissatisfied with their leaders, what is really stopping you from taking a big swing, from getting your name of that bullding, instead of being vaguely remembered?
Usually it’s the idea that 99% of the people around you are empowered to say no but not to say yes. To justify that, to do their job, they question, sow doubt, play the politics of fear. None of this is about analytics, understanding economic trends, or truly leading an organization into the future.
So when you are presented an opportunity that makes sense, for instance to use energy waste to fund whole school systematic upgrades to better learning environments, balance budgets, find new money to finally conquer persistent problems, define your legacy an act on the opportunity you have been presented.
For school districts in Florida you need to look no further than Florida Buy to get your Minimise contract without going to RFP/RFQ.There is no time to waste to fix in your utility costs as the price of energy skyrockets and inflation shows no signs of slowing down. The best thing you can do for your district is to fix those rates without delay. https://floridabuy.org/minimise-usa-llc/
